Happy Flag Day everyone! Usafla10

June 14th
Flag Day, is a day for all Americans to celebrate and show respect for our
flag, its designers and makers. Our flag is representative of our independence
and our unity as a nation.....one nation, under God, indivisible. Our flag
has a proud and glorious history. It was at the lead of every battle fought
by Americans. Many people have died protecting it. It even stands proudly
on the surface of the moon.

As Americans, we have every right to be proud of our culture, our nation,
and our flag. So raise the flag today and every day with pride!

Properly Display Our Flag

There is a right way and a wrong way to display the flag. The American
flag should be held in the highest of regards. It represents our nation and
the many people who gave their lives for our country and our flag. Here are
the basics on displaying the American flag:

  • The flag is normally flown from sunrise to sunset.

  • In the morning, raise the flag briskly. At sunset, lower it slowly. Always,
    raise and lower it ceremoniously.

  • The flag should not be flown at night without a light on it.

  • The flag should not be flown in the rain or inclement weather.

  • After a tragedy or death, the flag is flown at half staff for 30 days. It's
    called "half staff" on land ,and "half mast" on a ship.

  • When flown vertically on a pole, the stars and blue field , or "union",
    is at the top and at the end of the pole (away from your house).

  • The American flag is always flown at the top of the pole. Your state flag
    and other flags fly below it.

  • The union is always on top. When displayed in print, the stars and blue
    field are always on the left.

  • Never let your flag touch the ground, never...period.

  • Fold your flag when storing. Don't just stuff it in a drawer or box.

  • When your flag is old and has seen better days, it is time
    to retire it. Old flags should be burned or buried. Please do not throw it
    in the trash.

Did you Know? There is a very special ceremony for retiring the flag
by burning it. It is a ceremony everyone should see.Your local Boy Scout
group knows the proper ceremony and performs it on a regular basis. If you
have an old flag, give it to them. And, attend the ceremony.
